Historical Dagger 2014


Robert Ryan

The Dead Can Wait

Published by: Simon & Schuster

At a time when Sherlockian recreations are ten-a-penny, Ryan’s Dr Watson At War series seems likely to be the one that would most have won the approval of Conan Doyle himself. As well as offering a fresh perspective on a legend of crime fiction, Ryan’s novel sheds new light on some of the darkest aspects of the British effort to achieve victory during the Great War.
